Roland Irwin's Crawfish Bisque

Stuffed Heads:


2 qt. Crawfish tails
2 Large Onions, finely chopped
1/4 large bell pepper, finely chopped
1/2 cup cooking oil
1/2 stick of butter
30-40 cleaned heads
1/2 cup crawfish fat
Progresso breadcrumbs

3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup oil
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 large onion, finely chopped
1/2 bell pepper, finely chopped
2 stalks celery, finely chopped
1 qt. Crawfish tails
2 qts. water with 4 chicken bullion cuves
green onion tops and parsley, chopped,
to taste, black pepper, red pepper, salt, to taste.

Stuffed Heads: Grind 2 quarts of crawfish tails, add onions, bell pepper, cooking oil, butter, and, crawfish fat, in a large Dutch oven, and simmer until all vegetables are well cooked. Add salt and pepper (liberally), garlic, parsley, and green onions. Add breadcrumbs, enough to make a good stuffing consistency. Stuff cleaned heads, then roll in breadcrumbs and bake in a flat pan, stuffing side up, until medium brown. Heads can be frozen and thawed for use later. Note: if you have a little stuffing left over, you can add it to the bisque for flavoring.

Bisque: Make a very dark roux with the oil and flour. The roux should be about the color of a dark beer bottle, but be careful not to burn. As soon as roux reaches desired color, add vegetables, then tails, water, and salt/pepper (liberally). Simmer until tails are cooked. Add baked heads and simmer a little longer. Add green onion tops and parsley, and serve over a bed of rice.
